HQ HERO: Brett Osmond was understandably pleased with his victory at the NSW HQ Racing State Championship.

THE Osborn name is well-known around Muswellbrook with its transport company having lined the city streets for many years.

But, it’s Brett Osborn who is gaining a strong reputation across the state.

Son of Raymond and Debbie Osborn, the 32-year-old recently picked up the NSW HQ Racing State Championship in Sydney, which is his fourth title and the third in a row for his team.

The hat-trick of victories set a new record – and Osborn was elated with his latest triumph.

“That’s never been done before in NSW, so I’m very proud of that achievement,” he said.

The champion won all three heats at Sydney Motorsport Park over on November 17 and 18, which is incredibly impressive out of a field of 27.

Given this particular racing event is exclusive to HQ Holdens, which were made between 1971 to 1974, victory is truly down to driver skill, as opposed to other forms of racing that are often accused of being a competition of who has the best engineers and mechanics.

This makes Osborn’s success all the more admirable, and showcases his class and technique behind the wheel.

But, as with all good sportsmen, he’s already focused on his next challenge, which comes in the form of a four-hour endurance race at Winton Motor Raceway.

This non-stop schedule has been in place for most of the past six years, since he decided to get involved in the sport in 2012, but he said it’s been an enjoyable experience.

“When I first started racing in this category it was just so close and competitive between all the cars,” he explained.

“So, it was just good quality racing and that’s really what I fell in love with and what we enjoy the most.”

The four-time title winner was anxious to thank Osborn Transport, Busch Racing and his team for everything they’d done across his years that have contributed to his achievements.
